As it says in the title, former Toon players and what they are up to these days. I'll start.

 

 

Darren Peacock

133 appearances for NUFC

 

Signed-Darren-Peacock-Newcastle-United-p

 

 

Held a management role at Lancaster City between 2013-2015. Last seen coaching soccer schools for NLDDC Schools.

Actually saw him managing them when they were playing (I’m guessing West Allotment) in the FA Vase a few years back at Blue Flames. Trevor Sinclair was his assistant. Think he was a bit underrated in his time here as he played in a back four where the other 3 liked to bomb on and our defensive record was far better under KK than is reflected in the cliches of that era.

Definitely mate, he was a solid defender and a regular starter in a team that was up there with the best in the country.

Was at a talk-in with Rob Lee and John Beresford and they basically said that, while Peacock was a good centre half, in an ideal world, it would have been Des Walker or Tony Adams (the exact players they named) because the nature of our team meant we were susceptible to counters and Peacock, being last man back, had to read the game perfectly and meet it head on. Basically, in their words, he was good but not quite good enough for what we needed at the top of the table.

 

Actually, I think their exact words were "Darren needed to be our best player but he was our worst" Not meaning it as an insult to him, just that the rest of the side was brilliant.

He temporarily took an assistant manager role at Woodford United,  before agreeing to take over as manager of Hellenic League Premier Division club Ardley United from the end of the 2008–09 season, before resigning in early September 2015. His league record at Ardley over his spell in charge of the club was played 286, won 169, drew 45 and lost 72. The team never finished lower than 8th in the table with a best of 2nd in the 2013–14 season, in addition to which they won the Hellenic Premier League Cup twice, the Floodlit Cup once and most memorably the Oxfordshire Senior Cup in the 2013–14 season. Left in 2015.
